The facade of the home offers the first impression, so it is important to start the project with the largest proportion of the exterior, the walls. Austral Bricks’ San Selmo Reclaimed Brick in Original is perfect to achieve the look and feel of a rustic worn and recycled brick. They have a tactile natural texture that is rich in character. However, for a more refined option, Treble suggests Nubrik in Weathered Red for an earthy red finish, evocative of the red tones of our native rural landscape. Both options are hard-wearing, durable and will fit in seamlessly with the theme.

To continue with the traditional look, roof tiles that are reminiscent of shingles are a timeless and classic option. Bristile Roofing’s terracotta roof tiles in Slate are an easy choice; they are strong and maintain their colour well. For the smaller accents, Timber is the ultimate rustic element and can be used for both the front door and the garage, however, for a longer-lasting option, an aluminium door with a painted timber style coat is durable will still offer a pastoral sensitivity.

Moving inside, a key aspect of the Modern Farmhouse style is tactile finishings. Timber flooring can help in achieving this in the kitchen, whilst a wool carpet in a flax colour is the perfect cozy option for the bedroom and living spaces. In the bathroom, a subway tile in an earthy grey complements the red tones that run throughout the rest of the house’s exterior and is a subtle way to bring more textural elements into the home.

As the heart of the home, it’s integral that the kitchen is in keeping with the rest of the theme. A natural light stone marble countertop will offer a bit of lightness, whilst being durable and functional. Paying homage to the theme of the countryside, textural accents such as leather handles are a subtle way to bring modern details into the classic home.

Creating a rustic outdoors alfresco area is simple, with slate-grey paving to replicate the finish of the roof shingles, creating continuity. An often neglected area, the driveway, can be incorporated into this theme too, with UrbanStone’s Engineered Stone Accolade Pavers in the colour Desert Sand to bring a subtle warmth and an elevated aspect to the entryway. Creating your dream Modern Farmhouse home is attainable and will be a timeless style for the years to come.
